National tales

Every country has folk tales and fables. I think something like this would be a great addition to Duolingo. I'm thinking of these could be in a format similar to Duolingo Stories. It would give depth to the learning process as it includes pieces of culture.

That would be cool. :)

For now, you can read some Norwegian fairy tales elsewhere on the internet, like these by Asbjørnsen and Moe: http://grinebiter.com/NorskeFolkeEventyr/Huldra.html (There are lots of sites for these works, this is just the first one I found)

It won't count for Duolingo progress, but it might be fun practice. ;)

I like this idea. Folk tales and regional mythos is a great way to incorporate culture to the languages.
